I am happy and relieved to be back home, tho a bit sad to be leaving Makkah after only less than a week there. It was hot as usual, in Makkah, with drilling sounds all over the town, dust everywhere.
I was really disgusted with the “undelivered” promises made by the leader, who claimed to have done umrah packages for the past 11 years!! It really sucks. Food was terrible, the hotel very far, the company shortchanged us for a day ( must remind them of my claims) and many many other tho seems minor to some but a great deal to me!
The number of pilgrims doing the umrah was astronomical. You have to be there to witness them, best time was after the subuh prayers when everyone goes out of the mosque and you see them coming out at one go, streaming out from all the 99 gates around, masha allah, astounding, that’s all that I can try to describe. Must make an effort to go again in the near future as I feel that this first trip is not to my satisfaction and I hope to get the calling again from the ALMIGHTY! In sha Allah
